With ANKHOR FlowSheet Analytics, analytic workflows are graphically modeled by placing and connecting wizard operators in a dataflow graph. These operators support real-time interactive and visual exploration of data from many different sources. By incorporating SAP HANA’s™ advanced analytic capabilities into the same dataflow graph, HANA™ is transparently used as accelerator for OLAP queries and predictive analytic processing on very large volumes of data not any more fitting into the memory of a standard workstation. The analyst can creatively work with data at the speed of thought as there is no need to write extensive statements in query languages like SQL or SQLScript. The graphical construction principle and the possibility to immediately inspect intermediate results provide a quick and efficient way to simulate multiple “what-if” scenarios. The storage capabilities and speed of SAP HANA™ allow for practically arbitrary scalability.
